i want a faster processing speed for my brain. enough to make up the 15 or however many IQ points that separate doctors and me without cynicism.

the dentist did me a favour by explaining wisdom tooth extraction in great detail, including ancillary points about half paralyzed faces. i got more information about what my antipsychotic is messing with from him than i have gotten out of my doctor, ever. then he told me to go get my hormones sorted out. he had imperfect teeth.

What IS it that does make a difference in IQs? And what, even, does it matter? So confusing/frustrating.

I'm with you on the "faster brain" want. I long to catch/process/understand/file things in my brain much more efficiently, than having to go through so many unnecessary routes and byways to the thoughts' end destination. It takes a while...

there is a test called a wais - you could check wikipedia for what sort of competencies are considered relevant. mostly i think it's about how you take in and process data from your environment. that's more significant to what i was doing than any score, i think.
